they have nothing knew to report that. and we're told the f.b.i. team to come in to investigate the killing remains here in tripoli. according to all reports they have not reached benghazi amidst new concerns in tampering with the crime scene in benghazi and new concerns that the bad guys might be getting away. this militia crackdown means that the militants, possible suspects are being forced out of their bases maybe to parts unknown. back to you. >> gregg: thank you very much. >>> now to pakistan where anti-american demonstrateders are taking to the streets yet again. the peaceful crowd chanting and holding signs reading down with america and israel. there were no reports of violence, but this comes after days of riots and dozens of people killed and clashes with police around the country. >> gregg: in nigeria, a bomber killing two people and injuring dozens more. his target was a mosque but a gate stopped him from actually causing more death and destruction. witnesses say the car bomber slammed his car into the fence and then detonated his explosives into the parking lot. they say the tw
for two days. he was convicted in 2009 for bank fraud. we're told the fbi has contacted him because of possible threats against him. we're told he's not under investigation right now. >> brian, thanks very much. brian todd working this story. less than two years ago we watched as these kinds of protests spread across north africa and the middle east. protesters fighting to overthrow dictators and regimes. fast forward to today. we're seeing these same countries erupt in violence anti-american protests. let's bring in bobby gauche, editor at large for "time" magazine. he wrote this week's cover story "the agents of outrage," an excellent article, bobby. thanks very much. let me read a line from your article. the arab spring replaced the harsh order of hated dictators with a flowering of neophyte democracies. but these governments with weak mandates evershifting loyalties and poor security forces have made the region a more chaotic and unstable place, a place more susceptible than ever to rogue provocateurs fo meanting violent upheavals usually in the name of faith. the bottom line qu
that are on the ground in libya. there is one u.s. navy destroyer off of the coast and another coming there, too and f.b.i. agents and as well a stepped up drone surveillance. we are talking about a terror manhunt in libya. in addition to the motivator of that film made in the u.s., it could be a complex organization to take out u.s. officials with an al-qaida link. we are looking at the video we have seen coming from the who is citing that the al-qaida number two was killed by the u.s. and called on action from the u.s.. a complex and fluid situation, back to you. >> gretchen: thank you. >> brian: how does the united states respond? former director of national intelience who worked in the worst situation . ambassador, welcome. what is our best next step first of course in libya? >> let mow say that chris stevens, we lost an exemptary diplomat. he was the kind of example of expeditionary diplomacy that characterized our hot spots . we will mourn his loss and miss him greatly. as far as the next step, we have to wait this situation out a bit and at least get past the friday prayers tomorrow and see how tha
but they told us that a week ago. officials are not acknowledging any kind of progress and f.b.i. team sent here to libya to investigate directly the death, again from all indications remain in tripoli, we have no confirmation they have been to the crime scene. there are growing concerns that the crime scene may be tampered with the longer we wait until we get officials on the ground. again, wrapping up. the crackdown in the short run and long run on these militias might be good for security but might have one other problem with the probe. some of the suspects in connection with the killing may have left. it's a tough situation. >> kelly: gregg palkot. we appreciate that worth. >> jamie: still trying to get answers there and this big question. what is the next step to calm the violence in the region? what kind of role should be the u.s. play here. here ambassador is john bolton, former ambassador to the united nations joining us this sunday morning. good to see you, good morning. >> i wanted to broaden it out a bit and ask you overall, particularly this week, mahmoud ahmadinejad is in new york t
have been trying to gather the facts and did not want to get ahead of the f.b.i. investigation. >> shep: the polls are indicating that the president has taken a hit on foreign policy, ed. >> absolutely. he's doing better on the economy against mitt romney. but another poll shows his ap handling foreign policy, it's down to 49%. disapproval is up to 46%. that suggests a weakness there in part because of what's happened in the last week or so. and that's why the romney campaign is jumping on it. take a listen. >> the american people will judge him on the fact, are we more influential around the world and we are not. >> interesting, because before the argument about are you better off four years from now was about the economy. you see the romney campaign adjusting it to national security. their spokesman was the president has not only taken out key al-qaeda leaders, but point out they believe mitt romney was the one who jumped in and commented on all this violence a little too soon. >> shep: ed henry in coral gables. as mentioned, the secretary of state weighed in on this and hillary clint
no longer comment on it because the fbi's conducting an investigation, and, therefore, if you have questions, bring them to the department of justice, the same department of justice you used to run. but they said the d. of justice isn't going the talk to you either. then we started to get leaks about who was really behind this, and it wasn't spontaneous, and this was a planned terror attack, and there was some heads up about it, and now they come out and say, okay, it was a terror act. does that shift it? no longer doj, now this is a military thing that the pentagon should be talking to us about? >> correct. correct. and, um, it was -- it's obvious that, it was always obvious that it was a terrorist attack. the fact is that the ambassador's presence in, um -- was supposed to be confidential, the fact is that they knew -- megyn: got to cut you off, general, because we're going up against a hard break. thank you so much. be right back. megyn: well, an unemployment report released this morning suggests things are not getting better on the jobs front. economists expected 375,000 new jobless clai
from qaddafi and i want to know who did this and i want them turned over to our fbi. it is inexcusable. in our country if an embassy was attacked we would send thousands of troops there immediately. there were warnings in egypt and they said the mob is coming. they didn't send soldiers they just said the mob is coming, get ready. it is inexcusable. >> you have also expressed doing the same with usa to pakistan if they end up arresting or worse this doctor who helped identify the whereabouts of osama bin laden which we ultimately succeeded in gunning him down. so is there something going on in the entire region that we should just go slow on pouring money good moon after bad here? >> we had something called the arab spring. i am not sure if we are better or worse off. democracy in the middle east is sometimes bringing people into power who really don't like america. we have given billions upon billions of dollars to these countries and my question is if you want to be an ally of america act like it. if you are not going to act like an ally of ours you are going to disparage us and kill

that fbi agents apparently have not yet reached benghazi. this amid new concerns about the state, the condition of the crime scene there. we had our producer, jon, in the city drive by, check out the now empty u.s. mission. he did find a front gate locked but he saw no guards anywhere, no one, keeping an eye on things. back to you. jon: greg palkot reporting live from libya. thank you. arthel: a case from missouri now heads to the highest court in the land. the supreme court set to decide whether police must get a search warrant before forcing a drunk driving suspect to take a blood test. missouri prosecutors argue that because alcohol in the body quickly desi pace police need to act quickly but critics say nothing that intrusive should be done without a warrant. rebecca rose woodland is trial attorney as well as joey jackson criminal defense attorney. good to see you beth of you. here's the deal. so the supreme court will consider this. do you think there's any way they will ultimately rule that a search warrant will be needed if police want to take a suspect there on the spot,
